Abstract

This study explores positive behavior support and its effect on behavioral issues in students with severe and profound disabilities. Because positive behavior support eliminates behavioral problems in normal school populations, it is hypothesized that children with severe behavioral problems, specifically children with severe and profound intellectual disabilities will show a decrease in behavioral problems. In this study, an alternative school population implementing school wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) will be used. It is predicted that these students will show an increase in behavioral performance compared to their behavioral performance before positive behavior support was implemented in their school.
